Hackers Regret Accessing Credit Reporting Agency’s Database

IMG_4484

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The database of one of the major credit reporting agencies has been hacked, exposing personal information of about 143 million people in the U.S., UK and Canada.

The agency, Equifax, announced that hackers were able to acquire names, social security numbers, birth dates, home addresses and drivers’ license information — making it easy for criminal elements to have access to people’s financial accounts, including credit cards.

But in an anonymous statement posted on social media, a spokesperson for the alleged hackers said that his group is now deeply regretting what they have done.

The reason? The people whose information they have accessed all have bad credit, making their hack practically useless.

It’s the economy, stupid!
